Apprentices

Investing for the future

Apprenticeships

At Thorne Widgery we’re proud of our 70 year history and being the largest independent accountancy practice in Hereford and expanding to Ludlow.

We believe good business is built on good planning.

So when we’re looking to the future we want to invest in apprentices with great technical skills, to ensure we have strong resources to grow our business in the years ahead.

The apprenticeships on offer will vary from year to year from Business Administration, Accounting to IT.

As Thorne Widgery apprentices working with us you’ll benefit from exposure to a varied customer base, from businesses of all sizes through to schools and non-profit organisations.

You’ll have the opportunity to experience a wide range of business/accountancy/IT processes whilst developing your skills and knowledge.

Many of our apprentices have worked in a rotation around teams by the time they have completed their apprenticeship programme.

Our apprenticeship programmes are fully supported by HWGTA, which as an employer, gives us a joined-up approach to apprenticeship’s progression at college whilst gaining MAAT and ACCA accreditation.

Looking further to the future, many of our former apprentices are still enjoying a rewarding career at Thorne Widgery, many after more years than they’d care to remember!

 

What our current apprentices and graduates have to say:

Harvey Lewis

Harvey is one of our youngest apprentices to date having joined us straight out of school at the age of 16. Harvey has completed Level 2 and 3 AAT while assisting our team with the day-to-day work of the practice. He will be commencing Level 4 during 2019, and then hopes to continue his studies with the goal of one day becoming a qualified accountant.

So why TW, Harvey?

“I can confidently say I feel comfortable where I am, everyone has welcomed me and have been looking after me; helping me into the accountancy world. Thorne Widgery has taught me a lot with their training sessions, teaching me the base knowledge needed and also little tips that will make jobs easier to understand.”

Harvey won the Excellence in Accountancy Award – https://www.thornewidgery.co.uk/about-us/awards/

 

Charlotte Toon

Charlotte joined Thorne Widgery in 2015 after 5 years at Santander. She loves working with numbers but found long-term, banking wasn’t offering the career opportunities she was looking for particularly in auditing. Having passed Level 3 AAT she’s looking to continue her studies to become fully ACCA qualified and to pass on her knowledge and experience to other new apprentices.

So why TW, Charlotte?

“Wealth of knowledge which is good when I’m still learning as lots of people to ask. As TW offer a wide range of accounting services (which you can’t get in all practices) there’s plenty to learn and the opportunity to find what parts of accountancy I enjoy. As the largest practice in Hereford with a good reputation, I’m proud to say I work at TW.”

 

Work experience and Internships

We think it’s important that opportunities are offered for all and where possible will accommodate requests for work experience to student from years 10/11/12 and 13 and sandwich year students at University.

For 2018 we will be offering further details of schemes later in the year.
